92-year-old Rae revealed that she had been diagnosed with bone cancer in 2017, just seven years after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, from which she was able to recover after six months of chemotherapy.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Rae wanted people to celebrate every day, 'to savor the day' and be good to themselves and to others. That was the late actress' way of life - kindness and love.
